Forget clothes, shoes, purses, etc. Lately I've been dreaming ALL about house stuff! We are in the process of saving for our down payment, and will be able to put offers on something the end of next month. I am estastic. I can't wait! It has been a long journey. I'd like to say I've learned alot, but don't ask my husband, or my mom about how I've learned to save money. They will tell you the truth. I could've had MUCH more but certain things I can't live without! With what money I want to spend on a house, I will definately be fixing it up. Most likely before I can even move in! So why not do it up the way you want the first time?? I am definately a DIY person, or get ideas and try and find something similar, for cheaper! We do have our eye on something a block over from where we are living now, but it needs some MAJOR work! I am not even kidding. So one of the first projects that is of importance for me {after demo-ing, and cleaning} would be the kitchen. Here are some photos for inspiration that I've been looking at. **Disclaimer I am not the kind of person to do something all in one style or way. I like a little bit of this and a little bit of that. In my head {scary!} though it all makes sense. Knowing myself and my mom :) the way I do,  I know it will all come together!
{source: love the lines and simplicity..but to much stained wood for my taste}

{source: I have a clock similar to this. I've been dreaming of putting in on a hood mantle above my range/stove}

{source: love the distressed white cabinets with the darker island and the pendents above the island}

{source: I think this is my favorite as far as the creamy white color with the potted plants. Of course I am in love with the range and hood mantle!}

{source: a little to yellow for me but like the softness in colors and the cozy warm feeling!}

{source: a little too country for me, but I do want a creamy distressed cabinet with a stained wood/ or pine island...I already have a gorgeous pine armoir that will be placed in my new kitchen...where ever that will be!}

{source: another example of some pine with the creamy white! Love the cabinets...except my colors would be reversed! Light cabinets/dark island}

{source: another example}

{source: I love the finish on this light!! Would definately be looking for something similar, but cheaper!!}

{source: I love the different elements in this room!}

{source: another example of shopping for something cheaper...and its probably a little to much for what I want, I just thought it was adorable!!}

Hope you all have a wonderful day! I am off to work...
